El Argentino 1939

I am researching My Father's life history and have found that he made his first sea voyage as a Pantry Boy on the MV El Argentino leaving London on 1st April 1939 and visiting Cape Verde, Montevideo, Santos, Buenes Aires and arrived back in London on about 24th May 1939.

Does anyone know the dates of arrival at the ports visited on this trip.

At the end of the trip he sined off as he didn't like the work as Pantry boy. He later sailed on the Goathland and was invalided off the ship with Malaria in Canada. He then left the sea anf joined the RAF for the duration.
